It’s an interesting story, but I get a bit squeamish about tracing internet comments to known individuals. A bit of a gray area - personally I wouldn’t comment nearly as much or as freely if my comments were tied to my ability to retain my job…

There’s always Tor and other proxies for that, and unless it’s the provider or the govt doing the tracing, but rather a blog owner, I don’t see anything wrong with that.

Thanks for Paging this. I saw the Arizona Republic article just before I left last night.

Huppenthal is racist scum. It does not surprise me at all that he went the sockpuppet route to promote himself and his nasty ideas.

Here’s a Page I made largely about him. Huppenthal has been screwing up and abusing Tuscon schools for years, from the Arizona Senate and as the state Superintendent of Public Instruction. He killed the Mexican American Studies program and participated in banning books, including a Shakespeare play.

From Wikipedia:

Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction (2011-present)

Huppenthal was elected Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction in the 2010 state election.[1]

In June 2010, Huppenthal was interviewed by a high-school student, Keith Wagner. A cut of the interview video was posted online that cast Huppenthal in a negative light. The cut showed him apparently contradicting himself and then walking out of the interview. It later emerged that the video inaccurately portrayed the interview and that Huppenthal did return. Wagner confirmed that the posted cut was inaccurate, and further stated that he was “irked” that his video was used for political means. The cut funding that Wagner asks about, and which appears to bewilder Huppenthal, was actually not part of the bill that Wagner references in his questioning.[11][12]

Huppenthal ran for office on a platform of “stopping La Raza”. He banned state funding for ethnic studies programs, resulting in the Tucson School District having to remove numerous books from the curriculum in January 2012, including William Shakespeare’s The Tempest.[13] Huppenthal’s ban was based on passage of HR 2281 championed by his predecessor, Tom Horne. Even though the bill was designed specifically to support closing down the TUSDs ethnic studies program (only the Mexican studies program, not African American, PanAsian, or Native American studies programs) on the basis that it, of course, violated the law, a subsequent report (by Cambium Learning), commissioned by Huppenthal, was released in May 2011, finding no evidence of the ethnic studies program being in violation of the law. The study did, however, find that the program was helping to close the achievement gap.

I hope his sock puppetry helps put an end to his political career, but I won’t hold my breath, because it’s Arizona.

Yeah, Huppental is a real piece of work. He actually set up robocalls on behalf of his buddies who own charter schools, advertising and endorsing these schools and how to get state $$ to send your kid there. An extreme disservice to the public schools that he is the superintendent over. Also, a good percentage of his posting was done from a state computer, during working hours…

Bonus: he screwed up on the robocall software, calls went out in the early AM hours instead of the afternoon PM hours. You can’t make this stuff up.
